Instagram Model Bitten By A Shark While Trying To Take Pictures

Instagram Model Posing For

- A 19-year-old Instagram model says she is lucky to be alive after being attacked by a shark as she posed for a photo in shark-filled waters.

Anyway, Katarina was swimming around with them when one of them obviously mistook her arm for a tasty morsel and bit down on it. Her boyfriend's father took several photos throughout the attack, capturing the exact moment that Zarutskie came in contact with the 5-foot-long shark.

The photographs show her instinctively covering the wound and raising her arm up in an effort to stop the blood spreading through the water. "I was pulled underwater for a few seconds and then ripped my wrist out of the shark's mouth as fast as I could". Zaruskie said she did not see them. The same could not be said for her family.

"At that point your body has so much adrenaline going and you just have to get out of the situation, but I stayed extremely calm", she says.

She told WPLG-Ch. 10 that doctors told her that she still has shark teeth fragments in her arm.

An Instagram model has been bitten by a shark whilst trying to get a picture with them, floating in a marina.

She is upset at the way she has been stereotyped and accused of being social-media obsessed and careless.

Zarutskie said she immediately headed for the stairs to get out of the water, holding her bloody arm above her head to keep it out of the water.

She jumped into the water on her own, without any sort of tour guide. The group passed an area in the ocean where several nurse sharks were swarming, and since it was promoted that swimming with these creatures was a safe and normal activity in the area, Katarina made a decision to hop in and get some photos (Note: a warning sign by the pool of sharks clearly stated that the animals "can and do bite" on occasion).

She added she's concerned the scarring could affect her modelling career.
